LAS VEGAS—Last Friday and Saturday, the Porn Star Road Trip came to Council Bluffs, Iowa, for two nights of feature dancing at the Bottoms Up Lounge. As usual, the bus was parked out front of the nightclub to promote the appearance that night of Charlot Temple, Tori Taylor and Gemma Owens, who were in town with the PSRT crew.
But the residents of the Twin Cities got into an uproar when the bus was spotted on the street. They even called the local news station to voice their concerns about the prospect of school-age children catching a glimpse of the vehicle. Lead anchor Chase Moffitt referred to the bus as “adult entertainment on wheels,” and it was the lead story on WOWT News last Saturday night.
“We’re bringing porn to the people and there’s absolutely nothing questionable about the bus,” says Cory Biggs, CEO of Porn Star Road Trip. “It’s very tasteful. We were very careful to design the bus without salacious images that some might consider inappropriate. We acknowledge our product is for adults only and at no time have we ever intentionally marketed our product to children.
“We were in a legally zoned area and had permission from the club to park the bus in front, like we always do,” Biggs continued. “Our goal is to bring porn to the people and we’re doing that. We applaud Bottoms Up Lounge who, in these difficult economic times, look to expand their business by offering their clientele our unique service and do not shy away from unfair public criticism.”
Biggs asked the news station for a rebuttal interview, but was denied. The bus has left Omaha, but has promised to be back at the Bottoms Up Lounge in July 2012.
